Lots Of Thank Yous

Thank you everybody who came and participated in Emil's Wake. We very much appreciated it and were very touched. We will come by in the next few days to personally thank you all for being such wonderful friends.

We have some catching up to do. Already in May we got the 'Totally Hip Award' from
wildcatsthree. This is what they said: "...we always enjoy our visits to the Cat Realm because of their creativity and ability to entertain...their world travel and cruises around the blogosphere are a must see." WOW. That is quiet a compliment! Thank you so much Abby, Rosie, Jackie, Gidget and Lola.

In July Castle wrote: "...I think that Storm would have passed this award on to every single cat, creature and human that came by to wish her well on her final journey, and I would like to pass this on to all who have since visited us to make sure me and my meowmies are we pass this on to all of you!" Thank you Castle, we humbly accept this in honor of the wonderful Furry Fighter Storm - we will never forget you and always love you!

And Samantha and Mr. Tigger gave us the Arte y Pico Award.

'The ‘Arte y Pico’ award" was created to be given to bloggers who inspire others with their creativity and their talents, also for contributing to the blogging world in whatever medium. When you receive this award it is considered a "special honor". Once you have received this award, you are to pass it on to 5 others.'
The rules for passing this honor on:

1) Pick 5 blogs that you would like to award this honor to.

2) Each award has to have the name of the author and also a link to his or her blog to be visited by everyone.

3) Each award winner has to show the award and put the name and link to the blog that has given her or him the award itself.

4) Award-winner and the one who has given the prize have to show the link of "Arte y Pico" blog, so everyone will know the origin of this award.

We like to pass this award on to Opus and Roscoe, Rosetti and Kirara, Bendrix, all my In-Laws and last but not least to Omer who just lost his sweet little Forest. Please go over and give him some comforting purrs.

Congratulations on your award. There were some wonderful graphics about Emil out there. We think that Emil, for all this life was short, certainly crammed in as much living as possible.

Congratulations on your awards. We are sorry we missed the wake. Mom was gone all weekend with extended family obligations. We will miss Emil very much. We loved his pictures and his zest for life.

OH Karl, sweetheart, we are soooo honored to get this award from you! Thank you so much, love!! (Buzzer is jumping around the staff because he thinks 'award' means food...hahahaha)

Congratulations on the awards, Karl and Mrs. OZ!!

Nose kisses and love,

PS-- I am very sorry I was the last with our favorite memory of Emil, but the staff's mac is still at the apple repair centre and there are still too many beans in the house to give me time to blog...

Sunny's Mommy said...

I am very sorry I missed Emil's wake :( He was a special mancat who left all of us behind too soon. I know he's having a good time at the Bridge though, with all the other kitties who are there.

Congratulation on your awards :-) They're well deserved.
